Putting my money where my spoon-hole is!
Just picked up a brass spoon on Ebay for $4. It'll make a nice gift for Kelley. Though she is far from a hypochondriac as demonstrated by several long trips, the magic of Brass has entrance...

Bogs?
I don't know why, but Bogs winter boots just got on my radar. I've been using hiking boots, laced loosely, with super-thick socks in the winter as a poor man's substitute for real winte...

Neat
The more I think about it, the more I think this is a pretty cool idea. I know dying from spoon bacteria isn't a crucial backcountry issue, but it might just be a little insurance policy for no...

Arcteryx SV a "parka?"
Can anyone comment on where the Arcteryx SV plus a Patagonia Micro-D fleece falls on the "tons of insulation" spectrum? I don't have any experience with super puffy down jackets, as t...

Multi-Use
I agree that a full bag is lighter, but if you're already carrying the jacket... multi-use. This is definitely one sleep system where utility comes before comfort. I don't think half bag...

Ideas
I picked up a half-bag from Wild Things off a BPL member. It's rated at 30ยบ, with enough length to reach almost to my armpits. I'm interested in using it with a synthetic jacket (Arcteryx ...

Kelty backpacks redwing 3100, red cloud 6650

Boreas Men's Buttermilk 40
Fit: This bag has a superb fit that places more pressure on your lower back, which distributes weight to the hips and keeps your upper back cool. I was impressed with how well this pack vented, even w...
